Handprint {Standing} Turkey Craft

This morning while little Miss Audrey was napping, Ava and I got out the craft materials and supplies and were ready to create another Thanksgiving Turkey Craft. (To see the first handprint turkey craft we've crafted this year, click here).

While the general idea and a few of the basic details for this turkey craft came from here, you'll notice that we added a few unique design ideas of our own.

Materials and crafting tools we needed for this craft:

- two paper plates
- one toilet paper tube
- paper and card stock
- pencil
- glue
- scissors
- stapler
- small dixie cup (or in my case, a plastic medicine cup)

 And here's how it's done:

1.) Trace your child's little hands on white paper (at least eight times). 
2.) Color the hands.
3.) Color the back of the paper plates.
4.) After you've cut out the hands, staple them to the paper plate.
5.) Trace and cut out another hand from brown card stock (that will later be used for the feet).
6.) Cut a rectangle out of brown card stock and staple to toilet paper tube.
7.) Color the medicine cup black with marker.
8.) Cut a circle out of black card stock (that will later be used for the base of the hat).
9.) To make the beak, take a small square of yellow card stock, and fold it into quarters. Cut off a triangle with one edge along the fold.
10.) Open up the card stock, and then cut the resulting diamond in half (that will later be used as the beak).
11.) Staple the paper plates together.
12.) Once you've cut out the eyes and waddle (as shown), glue all the pieces of the face and hat pieces onto the head.
13.) Glue the head to the body, and there you have it... your beautiful standing turkey. Perfect for centerpiece display!


  1. I love it with the plate added in. I haven't seen it done like that yet. Thank you for sharing at Crafty Moms Share!

  2. What a cute idea. I just may try it with my kiddos. I love how it stands on it's own. My walls are always covered with art projects, so it's nice when I can put something on the table or counter instead.

  3. Totally just pinned this! Thanks for the awesome idea :)
